On August 4, the Commissioners approved $37,500 to launch the initiative this year, and called on other local jurisdictions to participate by contributing the remaining funds. Now, the Climate Action leaders are talking with Council and Staff at Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater and other local jurisdictions to meet the Commissioners' challenge with their own contributions to the initiative.

TCAT and Guild leaders can support this by sending written comments, or giving testimony at Council and Committee meetings over the next two weeks. Call on our elected officials to act now to plan and prepare for a Clean Energy Recovery to rebound from the COVID Crisis and set our economy on a new course to address equity, housing and climate change crises our communities also face.
